Cape Town - Snow predicted for our very own Natural Wonder, an ill-informed World Cup tweet by an airline and stories of visa despair from our readers. 

These are our top 5 travel stories for the week:

5. Pretty Texas cheerleader in spotlight for Southern African hunting spree

Remember Melissa Bachmann, the 'hardcore huntress' who made headlines last year after hunting endangered species. Well, seems like she's been replaced.

As plans are being made to shift the hunt for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 further south the wife of pilot Zaharie Shah has finally spoken out, dropping a potential bombshell. 

3. Visa woes

Readers share their real-life issues with the new immigration laws instated by the department of home affairs recently.

2. KLM in big trouble over Mexico tweet

Less than two weeks after Delta Airlines posted a culturally insensitive tweet about a World Cup team, KLM has done the same.
